About Brandon, Florida:
Situated in the proximity of downtown Tampa, Brandon is a major community in Hillsborough County in the state of Florida.

The census-designated place, covering a total area of approximately 29 square miles, lies somewhat halfway between Tampa and Plant City near the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Brandon was named for landowner John Brandon, who arrived in the area along with his wife and six sons in 1857. He initially bought 40 acres of land in the present location of the CDP and later increased his acquisition by another 160 acres. The community experienced sporadic growths from the beginning of the 20th century. The expansion became more stable from the 1960s.
